So finally getting around to our hike in Nepal Annapurna last year. Breaking it up into multiple posts because there’s a lot of pictures and some have expressed interest in a more detailed account of our adventures – this first one is a bit lengthy, but should shorten up as we get into the mountains – most days consist of just hiking, the pictures tell the tale. Anyway if you have an interest in the read it can be found here:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vCk_VLAb2h1mAvNKm78Zykjrktdc76YvEF9mBTyxbvk/edit?usp=sharing
Map of the Annapurna Region in Nepal. We would be hiking most of the circuit except we would divert at the end into the Annapurna Sanctuary to the Annapurna Base Camp and then back out of the central region.
